The Wastes 1.1 Patch Notes
Author: Marco Cawthorne
Thu Jun 21 18:00:00 UTC 2018

We’ve been working on refining so many things since releasing 1.0. One of the things that we did for 1.1 is to go over all the maps, redo the lighting and make it all flow better.


The map ramshackle was completely overhauled to mirror the mod-version in layout and lighting.


Finale has seen a similar type of polish, with the vault-entrance area being redone in a head-turning fashion.


The Dunes has seen a drastic change of lighting, using the very same light values that were used by Postman in the mod-version.

Grime has seen a number of cosmetic changes and some slight alterations to the layout, to improve the flow and to make items more visible.


A new map has been added, too. That one is titled Recotta Alley and is not based on any map of the original mod. I always wanted to work on an industrial park/backalley type map, so there I went and did it. It will definitely see a series of enhancements and updates in the future!

Updates to the vehicles are still coming, but we shifted their priority away from 1.1 as we wanted to get all those changes and improvements out there as soon as possible. Working with new physics and mechanics requires a longer time of development and testing.

As said before, we are going to seperate the vehicle component a bit more. We will not give up on them entirely, however they’ll find their place and I assure you we’re going to make them a lot more fun (intentionally fun!).

Here is a changelog of all the major code-changes:

    Added support for the cvar sv_gravity
    Moved routing engine for the bots into the engine for better CPU performance
    Rewrote bot AI from the ground up to take items, health and mission objectives into account

    Fixed the akimbo pistols not having a proper recoil upon firing both guns at the same time
    Fixed the double-shot muzzleflash issue with akimbo pistols
    All sorts of stability fixes across the board
